Default Plant Reproductive Material Proposals Rejected

Plant Reproductive Material Proposals Rejected

The European Parliament’s Agriculture Committee has voted against
controversial proposed EU legislation on plant reproductive material (PRM).

CIMG1174 (600px * 450px)MEPs rejected the European Commission’s planned
seed regulation by 37 votes to two due to fears that it would hand the
Commission too much power and that individual countries would be given
no room to adapt the rules to meet their needs.

Agriculture Committee Chair Paolo De Castro commented: “We are worried
that merging 12 directives into one directly applicable regulation would
offer member states no room for manoeuvre to adapt the proposed rules to
their needs, while the high number of delegated acts would give the
Commission excessively wide powers, especially over heterogeneous
material and niche markets.”

The proposed legislation had caused widespread concern amongst industry
bodies in the UK, including Plant Heritage and the Royal Horticultural
Society, as it would require all plant varieties to be listed on an
official register, a move that would arguably threaten the future of
many smaller nurseries and National Collection Holders.

Of the 52,000 plants currently listed on the RHS’s ‘Plant Finder’
database, only 2,000 would have an officially-registered description
that would satisfy the criteria of the proposals.

After its rejection in the Agriculture Committee, the plans will be
scrutinised by the European Parliament as a whole at one of its
forthcoming plenary sessions.

Plant Import Rules To Be Tightened?



In related news, the Agriculture Committee also vowed to tighten rules
on importing plants into the EU to minimise the risk of pests and
diseases. MEPs are keen to establish a ‘positive list of countries and
products that do not pose an unacceptable danger’, while non-EU
countries wishing to export plants will be subject to strict tests, such
as on-the-spot audits, by the European Commission.

Thank goodness for that! A ray of common sense at last!

The other day, I had to remain here for some reason or other, so asked
him if the next day he'd go out and get some good coffee for the Tea
Room. The following morning he woke up and told me he was off to 'get
a Berlusconi'. I looked at him blankly and he said "you know, a rich
Italian". Common sense, eh?! ;-)

No Bunga Bunga parties for Ray.

Spring has sprung. A Prunus Cerasifera Nigra is in blossom, a black swan has a
cygnet and a pair of storks are sitting on a nest. Black swans originated in Oz
and apparently don't adapt to European seasons. The ancestors of local ones
arrived here at least 50 years ago.


I always think it's a good job all those plants and animals don't read
the books. We saw a black swan down on the Tamar about 3 years ago,
upstream of the Tamar Bridge.

We were involved with training dogs for The Guide Dog for The Blind years
ago and we always said that if the dogs could read, they wouldn't talk to
many of the people we know.
